In an exclusive interview for Latin Times, the Puerto Rican told us how was the experience and the reaction of the present with his music. 

"The experience was brutal," said the singer. "The concert was super packed and people had a positive vibe." PJ confessed that at first he felt the classic nerves of being the opening act, but as time went by the fans began to enjoy his music. "After each song I felt better and better, and people started chanting the songs, stood up and danced and that seemed super cool," added the singer who will release his first album in the remainder of 2017.

"My album is called 'Vital' and I'll be releasing some singles before releasing it," PJ said. "Soon they will be able to enjoy the single that is called 'Escoliosis' and will be coming out now in September." The singer also told Latin Times that soon he would give his fans a song called "Lo Que Nadie Queria Que Fuera", which happens to be the first track on his upcoming album.

PJ Sin Suela also said that his creative process when composing a song is organic and a quiet time. "I listen to the music repetitively in my speakers, then I start to write. That's my introverted moment," he said. "I have songs that I wrote in one day and others that took me up to two months." The singer says that the length of his composition process depends on what he writes is emotional or something more conceptual.
